Rated 5 out of 5 by Waltm from Great pants Love these pants. I'm very sensitive to the sun these pants make sure I don't get burned. Soft and comfortable too. My only complaint is they don't come in other colors

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigShow from Great Pants I love these pants. Great functionality. I did remove the mesh liner and it made the pants more comfortable for me. Other than that, they are spectacular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WBSScott from Go-to These have become my go to pants for hiking, kayaking and even rock climbing. Perfect fit, room to move and light weight. Best recommendation I can give is that I bought one pair, then bought two more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DrBrain from Plain Jane I got these because of the price without looking at how the pants were made or their features. There are no additional pockets like most convertible pants. There is no zipper (very inconvenient when using these for backpacking). It was my fault for not looking at the details. I would not have bought them if I had looked closer instead of focusing on the price. The pants are made well and are made with a cool material (nice for a warm day).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cline from Quality product These pants were purchased to wear during extended outdoor activities in hot weather. They performed beautifully; washed and air dried very quickly. My husband is very long waisted so he removed the built in net briefs since they were too short for his comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEFISHTO from Best Convertible Fishing or Out-Of-Doors Pant In the Heart (and heat) of Cajun Acadiana USA South of Interstate 10 you NEED comfy clothing. This pant is perfect. I Kayak in the South Louisiana Salt marsh—A brutal, unforgiving environment. The Backcast Convertible Pant is my go-to pick every trip. Pants to shorts and vice-versa. And being as our winters aren't too cold, I layer these with some light LJ's and go. They repel the all to occasional deluge and the pockets are roomy. They dry in a flash. They launder easily and look great wash after wash. I really like 'em.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rprp from small this was smaller than the size guide led me to expect. My waist measures at 50". Size guide says that 3x is 48-51. I'm in that range, so it should have fit, but it's too small at the waist unless I can lose a few pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LucyMae49 from Great pant and convertible feature is terrific This is my third purchase of this pant for my son. All three look great, all three are comfortable and the double function of long pant/shorts is perfect for him. His favorite pant was an old pair of Patagonia pants......until now. Love Columbia, love Columbia.
